Restore clear vision with help from a Springfield area eye care specialist.
Myopia, commonly referred to as nearsightedness, is a condition that allows clear vision in close range but not at a distance. It's a condition that affects approximately 25 percent of Americans.
The shape and size of the eyeball distort focus on distant objects. While this condition generally occurs in children, nearsightedness can develop in adults due to visual stress or changing health conditions such as diabetes.
Detecting and Treating Myopia
When distant objects like stop signs or chalkboards are hard to see, it is time for a comprehensive eye exam.
The optometrists at Vision Clinic have the latest diagnostic technology to detect and treat myopia. Your eye care specialist will evaluate your eyes using common distance charts which measure visual acuity (commonly identified as a fraction such as 20/20). And they will also use special diagnostic tools to determine how your eyes focus light.
With this information, they will determine the power of the prescription needed to restore sharp vision. Treatment options generally include corrective lenses, therapies, and surgeries.
